Subject: File No. SR-FINRA-2013-003

I strongly support the proposed revised public arbitrator definition contained in SR FINRA 2013-003. Although I believe that a uniform five year cooling off period should be incorporated into the revised rule, I believe that the rule makes great strides in advancing the fairness of the forum for investors and investor perception thereof.
